Neon is going to give you a neon undertone no matter what, so I would avoid using that. The white will never give you a dark green color. It would be best to purchase a dark green wig. Honestly in your shoes I would look at http://cyperous.com/english/

I wish I had looked at this thread before I dyed my wig. XD; The only problem I had was going through more then one bottle... and it says on the FAQ that you need only one. My wig wasn't really long (it goes a little past my shoulders). Is there a certain way you spray it...? Is there a video demonstrating it? I think when I try it again (it didn't come out the right color), I'm going to section it off by layers so the color reaches every nook and cranny. The first time I did this, there were quite a bit of missed patches. ><

Hi! I plan to dye a 150 cm long wig using the FW technique. But I am a bit thoughtfull on how many bottles of rubbing alcohol I will need to dye the entire wig.
I live in sweden so we do not really have rubbing alcohol but we do have somethings similar. One bottle contains one litre of rubbing alcohol (might be an important detail to mention)

I've heard some stories about people using the white FW ink to lighten colours but in some of those cases the dye/ink didn't hold and a lot of people speculated it was because of the white? I have to get a pale pink shade onto a white wig but I'm worried that the process magenta on its own will be far too dark and that adding white will make the dye job spotty.

anyone have any experience with using the white ink to lighten other ink colours?
